'ALICE GUY' TV SERIES
One of our favourite directors Jean Jacques Annaud (Enemy At The Gates, Name of the Rose, Seven Years in Tibet, Black Gold) will direct a TV series on world's first female director ALICE GUY. As Deadline reports, based on Emmanuelle Gaume’s book ALICE GUY, the series will feature an international cast, and will tell the story of Guy, who between 1896 and 1906 was thought to be the only female director in the world. Guy was an illegitimate, mixed race child, rejected by an abusive and violent father who kidnaps her from her mother, and raised between Chile, Switzerland and France. At the dawn of the 20th century, amid the hustle and bustle of the emerging art form that is cinema, she became the world’s first woman to direct movies.
